"Only as high as I reach can I grow,Hey .. you.. get outta my DREAM...
Only as far as I seek can I go,
Only as deep as I look can I see,
Only as much as I dream can I be"
- Karen Ravn
if you slept?
And what if,
In your sleep
In your dream,
You went to Heaven
And there plucked
A strange and
And what if,
When you awoke,
You had the flower
In your hand?
Ah... what then?
- Someone Coleridge
The alarm clock wakes you. You jump out of bed. Take off the jarmies and jump in the shower (maybe bath if you're lucky). Grab the shaver. Soap up. Quick shave with the razor. Shampoo and Condition the hair. Quick tooth brush with new toothpaste. Towel off. Give hair a quick dry with hairdryer. Then brush and begin the rush......
Run down to the kitchen. Boil the water in the kettle. Throw some bread in the toaster. Throw some coffee in your coffee mug with a bit of sugar and milk. Yuuuum, just the way you like it! Quick bowl of cornflakes. Some jam on the toast. Running late. Oh oh....... ruuuuun.....
Damn Mobile phone. "hello yeah be there soon bye". Download some music into the iPod. Grab a coffee at Starbucks. Now at work. Catch lift up to office. Say hi to Receptionist. In to office. Sit down at desk. Turn computer on. Check iPad for new book release. Damn! Not there yet. Check Amazon. Hmmm... still coming. OhK. Let's earn some money to pay the bills.........
What are what? Oh, the underlines. Well in some way shape or form every word underlined was somebody's DREAM.
Mmmm Hmmm. Every one of those underlined words was a THOUGHT in somebody's FUTURE. A reason to get excited. A DREAM that they made come true. Somehow. Every single thing used in the average day is a DREAM COME TRUE for somebody. It must have come true because you are using that product. It was FUTURE. Now PAST. The DREAM is your FUTURE PAST. So how long did it take to have those dreams manifest, become REAL?
Simple answer. It doesn't matter. Those of you who have been reading me for a while, those who are on my Journey with me, watching, waiting, know that I break one average LIFE TIME of 80 years into 3 billion heartbeats, or two and a half billion seconds or 800 million breaths (about 4 heartbeats to a breath). Whatever. It's only TIME which is a man made thingie.
But a DREAM. How long does a dream last for? Well the dream comes true when you make it, right? The dream comes true when you take it from your future and put it into your past. The DREAM IS your FUTURE PAST.
So when is that?
ONLY TIME. But I know one thing for sure. These products called chairs like the one I'm sitting on right now. They are going to be around a lot longer than my body. See, my body has limited TIME. The future for my body is limited as well. But the DREAM? Oh yeah, the ETERNAL DREAM .......
I finished my script today. It's not my DREAM but it's a STEP toward making my dream come true. It will because it has.....
....... LIVE YOUR DREAM .......
